Seasonal Samplers Series

Learn beginning quilter skills while making these Seasonal Samplers.

Seasonal Samplers Intro

Each  “quiltini” (little quilt) features one or more quilting techniques that confident beginners or intermediate sewers can add to their skillsets. At the end of this series, you’ll be ready to conquer more advanced projects AND you’ll have a year’s worth of wall hangings that can be interchanged on the quilted “frame”.

You’ll find the handouts/supply lists at YouTube under each video. Hope you enjoy this project!
